I use Serrapeptase and Turmeric to deal with inflammation and occasionally White Willow Bark for acute pain. I have also used an athletic tape, referred to as "Kinesiology" tape. Arnica cream is also good to use for injuries.
Serapepetase, huh? I might try it myself. I'm taking turmeric, coconut oil, and just added MSM.
